Salsa with Fish

This sweet, tender halibut is perfect as is, or can be topped with a Roasted Tomato and Jalapeno Salsa. Try serving it alongside a lightly-dressed green salad. 

Ingredients

2 halibut fillets, or any other flaky white fish

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Pinch of red chile flakes (optional)

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

Wash and pat dry both fillets. Season well with salt and pepper on both sides. In a pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil, adding the chile flakes if using. When hot, add the fillets and cook until opaque in the center, about 4-5 minutes per side (depending on the thickness of the fish). Add the lemon juice halfway, right before you turn the fish over.

Quick Cooking Tip

Do all your prep in advance, and use three bowls: one for all your ingredients, one for all your prep, and one for all your refuse. Staying organized can help you put out meals faster.
